North American hardwoods


The quality of North American hardwoods is second to none and we offer almost every species you might want to work with, including white oak, red oak, tulipwood, ash, hard maple, soft maple, cherry, black walnut, douglas fir, western red cedar.


However, our speciality is improving on nature and making these woods even better. Our Premium Grade 90/80 heartwood walnut is so popular because we offer it with minimal knots on both sides. This gives consistent quality to everything you’re making. We also supply Premium Grade 90/80 cherry, and a super prime white oak containing minimal sap, plus maple and ash, and can offer them all as FSC Certified in strips and wider cuts.

By using hardwoods we actually help to reduce one of the primary elements associated with global warming.


North American hardwoods

North American Hardwoods are among the most plentiful, and well-managed natural resources in the world. Hardwoods have a finite life cycle and when properly managed, they regenerate. In fact, there’s more hardwoods now that there were 50 years ago, and the current tree selection and harvesting methods will ensure this is the case for generations to come.

Hardwood trees have another positive impact on our environment. Trees remove CO2 from the air. As a by-product of photosynthesis a tree releases oxygen for us to breathe, and then the excess carbon is stored within its fibers. If the tree is harvested and used, this stored carbon remains in the wood whether it becomes a board, a chair, an heirloom armoire or your grandfather’s clock. This carbon is sequestered for the useful lifetime of the wood product. By using hardwoods we actually help to reduce one of the primary elements associated with global warming.


A hardwood tree lives a finite life. While growing, it does wonderful things: removes carbon dioxide from the air, returns oxygen for us to breathe, and stores carbon out of the atmosphere. Once harvested, the stored carbon will remain in the wood unless it is burned or decays.

Thus each hardwood tree creates a legacy that lives on much longer than the tree’s original lifespan. Hardwoods are a gift from Mother Nature. One we all need to use responsibly.


Healthy hardwood forests are net producers of oxygen, thanks to photosynthesis. Growing trees take carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and separate the carbon and oxygen atoms. Trees use the carbon to grow roots, trunk, branches and leaves (a tree uses 1.47 pounds of carbon dioxide to grow a pound of wood) then return the oxygen to the air (giving off 1.07 pounds of oxygen.) This process reduces greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. How much? An acre of trees can remove about four metric tons of CO2 from the atmosphere each year.

So why harvest them? Once a tree stops growing and begins to decay, the process reverses and the tree begins using oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide. However, if the tree is harvested and used, its stored carbon is held within the wood for the usable life of that wood product. It is estimated that each year, more than 175 million tons of carbon are stored in products that we use everyday -- tables, chairs, floor to name just a few.

Wood products have a low carbon impact and what is called a low level of embodied energy relative to other building materials. As a raw material, trees use the sun’s energy to grow and develop. And the amount of energy necessary for producing wood products is low compared to other building products made from other materials like steel, aluminum, glass and brick.

In manufacturing we employ advanced technology and responsible manufacturing practices to be sure that that almost nothing goes to waste. Wood scraps and wood processing by-products all have a use:

• Tree bark becomes mulch and soil conditioners
• Sawdust is sold for animal bedding or fuels the boilers that operate dry kilns
• Trimmings are chipped and processed into paper and other products
• Small wood pieces are processed or finger-jointed into wood components
